I grew up in So. Cal, the ninth of fourteen children. I studied Philosophy in college, but my most valuable education has been my direct experience in my professional field. For over 17 years I have been in the financial industry working for Fortune 500 companies, emerging growth companies and my own entrepreneurial start-ups. I love to spend a lot of time with my family- my wife and four sons. We enjoy many outdoor activities like hiking, camping, fishing, and swimming. Our greatest joy is opening our home for international Christian hospitality.
